Ruth, age 49, sells food items such as rice, oil, peanuts, butter, and onions to earn an income. She started this business with money given to her by her husband and she learned this business from him. She has been running her venture for the past 10 years. Her favorite part about her business is that it gives her money every day to apply toward family expenses.
Ruth lives in Montserrado County with her husband and their two children, ages 13 and 18. Both are enrolled in school. Montserrado County has the largest free port and is the number one commercial county in Liberia.
Ruth is requesting a loan in order to purchase rice, oil, onions, peanuts, and butter to offer for sale.
